EPON™ Resin 896

Description

EPON™ Resin 896 is a solvent-free, epoxy resin designed for use with EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 3389 to give formulations with a high degree of chemical resistance.  This epoxy resin has good crystallization resistance and low viscosity so it is easily handled.  The cured system demonstrates superior mechanical strength and high heat deflection temperature (HDT) even without post curing at elevated temperatures. 

It is important to note that only the combination of EPON Resin 896 with EPIKURE Curing Agent 3389 provides the highest chemical resistance.  Do not modify this system with additional diluents, or by adding solvents or modifiers, because this will decrease its performance.  EPON Resin 896 and EPIKURE Curing Agent 3389 are designed to work together to provide low viscosity and superior chemical resistance for the application areas listed below.
